After a period of negotiations, I’ve finally received permission from my favorite poet and his new bride to publish some of the personal photos I shot at their July wedding. (Please see the photos in my album under the title “Paris Match.”)
Marriage remains the union of disparate elements: male and female, Yin and Yang, proton and electron. What am I talking about here? Nothing less than the very tension that binds the Universe. When we look at marriage, people, we are looking at creation itself. “I am the sky, “ says the Hindu bridegroom to the bride. “You are the earth. We are sky and earth united… You are my husband. You are my wife. My feet shall run because of you. My feet shall dance because of you. My heart shall beat because of you. My eyes see because of you. My mind thinks because of you and I shall love because of you.”
Look into the eyes this happy couple. See hope. See love. See the promise of a future. See your own dreams. Dream again. Wish them well.
